The Tertiary Entry Program (TEP) is the ideal course to prepare you to successfully complete an undergraduate course. TEP aims to:
• affirm identity and culture in a learning context
• develop skills and confidence
• encourage independent learning.
Throughout the course, you will participate in learning experiences which are personally and culturally affirming. We value the skills and knowledge you bring when you come to study. These skills and experiences are an important aspect of learning. TEP staff members are friendly and helpful; they are here to assist you with all aspects of your studies.
The Tertiary Entry Program (TEP) embraces an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focus to prepare students for successful participation in undergraduate and postgraduate university degree courses. Students who successfully complete the full course gain a Tertiary Entry Ranking (TER) which provides them access to Undergraduate courses at Australian universities.

Students are often cross-enrolled into STEPS units and this provides more electives for students depending on the student's diagnostic testing results, the requirements of the undergraduate course to which the student aspires, and the student's personal circumstances. A study plan is established for each TEP student in consultation with the Head of Course TEP.
